A Taste of Home, is a national invitational exhibition, guest curated by Julia Galloway in conjunction with Clay Art Center. The show consists of ceramic cups or drinking vessels that each artist has created reflecting their relationship to the meaning of home, whether presented as a humble but favored object, vehicle of expression, or object of desire.
The cup is both an everyday and intimate object in our daily home lives. Using our favorite cup can bring us unscheduled moments of comfort, elicit special memories, and create opportunities for social interaction as we stop to imbibe, reflect and savor. A cup can be the touch of elegance at the hurried breakfast table, the fun, bright moment in the workday, or the relaxed drink over a conversation with a loved one. Whatever reason we have to choose a particular cup, it elevates that object from functional to sacred just because it is our favorite and reminds us of home.
In the past year, our homes have been transformed into new environments with new narratives and language. Working from home, remote learning, home studio practice, isolation, virtual socializing, economic impact, and/or watching social justice events unfold across the United States in a tumultuous election year are just some of the ways the home landscape has been changed. For some, the home landscape has changed forever.
